Justin Theroux out & about in NYC, nine days after proposing to Jennifer Aniston

These are the first new photos we’ve had of Justin Theroux since he proposed to Jennifer Aniston (allegedly) in New York City (allegedly) two Fridays ago (allegedly). I have no idea if Justin ended up traveling back to North Carolina with Jennifer after the proposal, but I do know he’s in New York right now while she continues to work on We’re the Millers in NC. Fame/Flynet describes these photos as, “Wanderlust’ actor Justin Theroux out for lunch at The Smile Cafe in New York City, New York on August 19, 2012. After lunch he stops to check his cell phone and then hail a cab which doesn’t stop for him.” Which is a hilarious description.

Sartorially speaking, I like this look on Justin much more than his sweat jeggings or whatever he was wearing a few weeks ago. As I’ve said before, I like Justin’s body – he’s slender but solidly built, with a long torso and short legs. So, he needs to wear certain kinds of styles, and this is it. Jeans that fit (he needs to go for a smaller inseam though), tight t-shirt, everything close-cropped. It’s his “look” and it works for him.

In all of last week’s tabloid reports about the engagement, there were several quotes from unnamed sources that seemed to indicate that the problem Jennifer Aniston has had with previous boyfriends is that they can never deal with her enormous fame, and that they always end up feeling like “Mr. Aniston” in the relationship. The sources claim Justin is different – that he’s his own man, and that his ego is fine with Jennifer being “the famous one” in the relationship. I tend to think the dynamic is different than that theory, but I do agree that Justin is fine with Jennifer having this enormous (mostly tabloid) fame. I wonder if he’ll feel differently about it after two or three more years of being a solo paparazzi target though. Something tells me he kind of… enjoys it.

    Meh. He loves the attention that’s for sure. Nothing new with that. Why else HIS rep making the engagement announcement?
    I’m just here to see if Liberty writing down anything funny about JustJen. :D

  2. Bluedog says:

    I never noticed his short legs until you pointed it out but now it’s ALL I see.

    I do think he’s handsome but that dyed black hair and air of try hard hipster just kills it.

    Surprised he’s hailing a gas guzzling cab. Shouldn’t he be in a Prius?

  3. Chicoulina says:

  9. valleymiss says:

    I think he’s hot as hell and I’ve loved him and that sexy widow’s peak since I saw him in “Mulholland Drive.” Go Jen!

    I wonder if he’ll feel differently about it after two or three more years of being a solo paparazzi target though. Something tells me he kind of… enjoys it.

    KIND OF???

  11. JulieM says:

    I find this guy to be quirky, interesting, well educated. He speaks fluent Mardarin; he writes. And that’s not alleged. I think Jen did good.

    • sukienow says:

      all the therouxs seem to speak more than one language

      his famous cousins louis and marcel both speak various lananagues; louis speaks while marcel speaks spanish and russian

      his uncle the novelist paul theroux speak Italian, French, Spanish,swahili and mandarin

      his other uncle alexander another novelist speaks french

      and another uncle peter also a novelist speaks fluent arabic

      maybe it helps that they a mixture of french canadian and italian american

  12. spinner says:

    Justin is smokin hot. He looks really good here. Huzzza!!

  13. Sirsnarksalot says:

    Has anyone seen Veep with Julia Louis Dreyfus? I was catching up on it this weekend and saw the episode where they have a media leak problem that they solve through a fake/rushed engagement story complete with detailed instructions to the guy about what ring to buy an the story of how it went down supposedly several weeks earlier etc. ALL I could think of when I watched it was Aniston’s engagement and all the explaining and rushing around that’s been going on to make it look legit. All to stay ahead of Brange….

  14. bea says:

    Sorry, but his “studied casual” just screams poser to me.

  15. Toot says:

    I wonder how long it took to get his hair to stand up just right? His whole get up is try hard to me.

  16. First Timer says:

    I oddly liked the wash of his jeans. Odd. LOL

  17. tracking says:

    He looks smoking’ here, but I suppose it is too much to hope for the death of the skinny jeans.

  18. phoenix says:

    He’s hot. He was good in Mulholland Drive.

  19. Liberty says:

    JA: –and do that thing you do to make your arm veins pulsate even when I’m not there.

    JT: Push-ups while I listen to Blow by Ke$sha?

    JA: Yes.

    JT: Done!

    JA: And wear your birthday jeans.

    JT: I didn’t GET any birthday jeans. (testily) You just gave me a question and an affirmative.

    JA: An affirmative? Is it any good? Face or thighs?

    JT: Not a creme — never mind. But I got some jeans when we went shopping yesterday.

    JA: We who?

    JT: oh! uh — what? we’re breaking up.

    JA: WHAT! WHAT! My lawyers will be on your ass so fast you —

    JT: I meant, the cell connection. I’m — uh — in the elevator.

    JA: Shopping with who?

    JT: Uh, you know — uh, Stiller. I admire his casual New Yorker aesthetic and he understands my torso.

    JA: Oh okay! Well, he does a good job! he should be like a professional movie stylist! hahaha

    JT: — hahaha. Okay, I’m in the street now.

    JA: — so Huvie wants you to stroll around, looking super hot, like, wow, no wonder I’m with you, who cares if the ring isn’t ready yet, like, so? Like, who wouldn’t do you with or without a ring, and how clean and moisturized you are compared to Brad – you got your hair styled, right?

    JT: Yes, this morning. We’re going with Midnight Cowboy for the color again, and a lot of olive oil and like, an imperceptible center scalp braid that Mister Alvarez invented, called a Peen Ridge, he says it will be hot, and –

    JA: Okay okay, are you wearing your free style bracelet we got you in Paris so you’d look free?

    JT: Yes, and my Spanish cycling boots, and the watch you gave me for signing and –

    JA: S–t! F—! S–t! Not that watch! That’s totally going to kill the look! Do you get NOTHING! How is it going to look that you have a watch like that and I don’t even have a ring plus I am having to walk around in capris? Do you EVER think of me? Oh my god take it off! At least tell me your chest and shoulders look pumped — no jacket right, I said just a t-shirt —

    JT: I’m sorry — I’m sorry — I’ll find a bathroom and take it off — my — Stiller thought it gave my ensemble a talking point for the style blogs — but sorry — yes my chest is looking good —

    JA: Jesus good or Ben Hur good?

    JT: I — I think the last one?

    JA: Okay now keeping walking and like, walk in front of bricks and graffiti to show you’re still totally alternative and like I must be amazing awesome in bed to bewitch you and plus, it will look sort of more French — Chels says Depardieu was like rough man ho once, so we need that, to get you more than comedies okay? Huvie says if you keep pumping he can Cruise you!!

    JT: Ok! Right! Wow! Ok here’s some cameras – I am also looking intense and like, creative but serious! I still have the watch on, but like, I am looking annoyed with it, like maybe a director gave it to me.

    JA: Okay keep doing that and remember DO NOT buy a latte, maybe only like a Red Bull. I have to go now. my sass-walking man strumpet! You make me complete!

    JT: You make me!

    The conspiracy theorists still haven’t answered why the Brandge haven’t gotten married last weekend.
    That was the reason for JA’s “rushed ” engagement wasn’t it??
    So by that logic can we just call bs on all your other conspiracy theories.
    Even the Brandge fans have no clue when they are getting married if ever or even if they already are.
    So its ludcrious to suggest JA is basing her dates on someone who was her ex all those years ago.. blah blah.
    I hope at the very least this quadrangle are laughing their arses off at the unintentional humour they generate.
    I get the need some have for conspiracy theories regarding major world events, aliens maybe, leading political figures and so on but 4 actors?
    Its a bit much & makes people seem v silly.

    • The Original Mia says:

      No. No. You don’t understand the conspiracy theory. The theory was that the rumored Brangelina wedding prompted Jen to put out the engagement story. She bought the story the paps were selling without any real knowledge of the Brange plans.

      So…thinking they were getting married, she “gets” engaged. When it doesn’t go down that Saturday, but is strongly rumored to be happening the following week, she puts out a press release on Sunday to ensure all the press leading up to the supposed nuptials is about her engagement and not their wedding. That’s all well & good except the Brange weren’t getting married. Now there’s an “engagement” and no sign of a ring, but pics of Jen hiding her left hand with a gold band.

  21. Imelda says:

    Original Mia – if we the public have serious doubts about the authenticity of what we are being fed in the media, do you really expect me to believe that somone that prominent in the business believes it or at the very least doesn’t have the inside track on gossip.
    Again I’ll reiterate – it makes people sound very silly.
    If this were her modis operandi why didn’t she do this with her other boyfriends seeing as the Brandge wedding rumours have been around since the start almost.
    But its worth a laugh I guess since the theories (on both sides) gets ever-more bizarre.

  22. Imelda says:

    @ Mac – definately like I said these scenarios get ever more hilarious.
    They might as well get a laugh out of it.
    I think both the Brange and Justjen should really have a laugh at the publics expense with their practical jokes ….the possibilities are endless.
    I think Jen would be up for that dont know about Angie though.

  23. Imelda says:

    @ O Mia True dat. They are all it. It would take a monumental person deep inside to get at the actual truth.
    Makes for good gossip though.

  24. didoodah_(france) says:

    Liberty, you may start to watch for a little cocktail dress, I think you’ll be invited to the wedding (on top of the list).

  25. kate says:

    :shrugs shoulders:
    i dunno, i think he’s hot in a way.

    all of it. its so try hard but its still hot. he is on my shame f888ck list and i cant answer why…

  26. chunkstyle says:

    Doesn’t he look like a younger (read non-silver hair) John Slattery in the face and his general build? No other comment than that. He was hilarious in Wanderlust. /end most boring comment ever.

  27. KellyinSeattle says:

    I hope he has a good personality because he’s not going to age very well, in my opinion.

  28. bgirl says:

    He could use 5-7 lbs. And some better hair color as mentioned 1000 times.

  29. Camille (The original) says:

    Ugh. He’s such a douchey, fug looking try hard. Nothing ‘sexy’ about this short legged midget at all. JMO.

  30. skuddles says:

    Hope Jen doesn’t wear a white wedding dress… that shoe polish on Justin’s bean is bound to rub off.

  31. Rena says:

    Justin certainly needs to lighten up on using the blue black shoe polish (also stop using it on the eyebrows). That stuff can be toxic.

  32. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    The cab passing him is hilarious!
